The gnome-settings daemon was updated today on my Fedora 11 machine and it's now performing all kinds of interesting activities. It's using my CPU a ton. And it's generating lots of network traffic.
This appears to be a massive bug of some sort. Anyone know any more details? I haven't found anything yet.
If you haven't updated it, DON'T!
2.26.1-10 appears to be the culprit.
